Summer heatwaves are coming. And with them, the air conditioners are going to be running at full power. Running your AC unit all day long during summer heatwaves can reduce its efficiency and cause a lot of risks and premature damages. Therefore, it’s important to take some precautions that can reduce strain on your AC.
Replace your air filters frequently
Air filters have a usable lifetime, ideally three to fourth months. By changing your air filters regularly you will avoid the blockage of the AC’s entire system, hence saving yourself from the headache of constant AC repairs.
Always check and adjust your thermostat setting
While most people prefer to reduce their thermostat settings because it’s actually not recommended to do that because it can lower the efficiency of the AC. It causes the AC to overworks itself and starts needing more repairs.
Keep The Heat Outside
Most homeowners tend to overlook this tip, even though it’s the easiest to follow. When you leave let the heat comes into your home, it gets harder on the AC to cool it down. Make sure you close all doors and windows so that the cool air stays in the house and the heat stays out.
